It is never too late to be what you might have been. ~ George Eliot
Perhaps, as a little girl, you always dreamed of being a mother, following in the footsteps of the Biblical Hannah, the inspiring Susanna Wesley, or the fictional June Cleaver. Yet the actual process of mothering is often fraught with frustration, loneliness, chaos, and fatigue.
Yet children are naturally forgiving. No matter what crisis arose yesterday, what messes you spent hours cleaning up, nor how short-tempered you were with them at bedtime, today presents an opportunity to ask forgiveness and begin anew. The dawn offers a chance for each of us to have another try at becoming that mother we always dreamed of being.
